“Larong Pinoy, as we call it, Larong Pinoy is a cultural treasure and today it is still being played in the streets by a lot of children, most especially the children who do not have high-tech games. Because, you know, today most of the people play high-tech game gadgets, PC games, and they become couch potatoes. With the traditional Filipino Games they get to go out in the streets and play with their fellow kids, their neighbourhood. And it enlivens the community.”

Anything from Chinese Garter to Piko are firm favourites with youngsters who enjoy turning their backs on video games in favour of the fresh outdoors.
STORYLINE
Chinese Garter, Manila style.
Known as ‘Larong Pinoy’ or Filipino Games, these traditional street games have been handed down through the generations.
Other games include Tumbang Preso, Patintero and Piko.
Chinese Garter probably got its name from the use of an elastic garter made in China.
